    Maybe he's trying to become a person and not just a republican! But I think he had better check with Boenher first to see if it's ok. No Rep. or Sen. republican has a mind of their own!

    Maybe Obama will offer McCain a job as Secretary of Defense? It would put McCain in a position of having to cut defense spending and removes him from the Senate. Or maybe Obama will tell McCain he's going to build a fence on the southern border of Arizona? Or maybe he'll tell him, "I wish YOU would have won in 2008!'.

    McCain have received pentagon permission to brief President Obama on the alien spacecraft that flew over phoenix in March, 1997. One quarter million people witnessed this 1-mile wide craft hovering over the city for over 25 minutes. The governor of Arozona gave CNN a full day of interviews where he said his investigation led him to firmly conclude some form of alien spacecraft flew over Phoenix that day.

    John's time on the stage has been long and boring. Leave the stage John, and allow the custodian the chance to mop up your flop sweat.

    The senile old man is going to be escorted to the WH, right. I bet he can't find it on his own. LOL
    I certainly hope that the President is not taking ideas from the man who brought the plaguein 2008!
